ABSOLUTELY GREAT!
Bram7, 24.05.2020
i'm in love with these. Up until trying these i never strayed away from Sennheiser but these are just lovely. Been using them now for a couple of months for everything from mixing (i live in appartment) to mastering and just enjoying music with them and they're so clear and transparent it's amazing. took a little getting used since i hadn't had any open backs before but it didn't take long before i fell in love. i couldn't live without them. they are also so comfortable on your head that i sometimes forget i'm wearing them. the long red cable is a bit fragile at the end tho but replaceable so nothing to worry about, there's also a second coiled cable in the box already. 100% recommend

Clarity
Coming from Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250Ohms I wasn't expecting MUCH better quality but hoped for improved mid range and less harsh highs and that's exactly what these cans have provided me with now. Easier on the ears and less ear bleed.

Pros
1. VERY comfortable and wearing glasses I can tell you that it's very comfortable and better than the DT990 which were also very comfortable.
2. My ears don't touch anything which adds to the overall comfort.
3. Clear audio with some bass but explosive mids gives me the goosebumps while using Tidal.
4. Gaming is also great with these and it's easier to hear footsteps without the bass stepping in and taking control. Not that there isn't bass mind you.. theres plenty but it's less and a bit different is how I would put it.. Certainly better than my previous cans.

cons
1. While listening to lower quality sound sources such as youtube the quality of sound seems lacking in some... DT990 does a better job here.
2. Soundstage for gaming isn't as wise as the DT990 but it does have superior quality of sound.

These are my new daily drivers and I'm happy enough with them for a few years at least.

Takes some time, but worth it
16.08.2015
AKG headphones have been lifelong companions to me. STarted out with a K-171 which served me well for 12 years, then moved on to K-240 MKII, which has been unbeaten so far... until now.

Unfortunately the first pair arrived with a manufacturing fault, but Thomann did a stellar job replacing the unit with a good one. Doesn't score good points for quality control on AKG's side, but I guess these things happen (hence 4 stars for quality instead of 5).

Build quality: flawless, as usual with their "pro" line. Ear pads are similar to other AKG cans, except under the velour you have memory foam that provides a better low-frequency insulation (without increased pressure on your head). You get two cables, an orange straight one, and the more practical coiled cable, both are of extremely good quality (I have one from my old K-171 that still works after rolling the office chair over it a couple of times).

Comfort: awesome. Light, but sits on its place well, even if you move around with it quite a lot.

Sound: these headphones need to be broken in (they start to sound better after 50 hours, really good after 100 hours of use). After that they really start to sound great. Spacious, incredible 3-dimensional sound stage, with fantastic separation between instruments. Since they are open, don't expect the kind of bass build-up / booming bass that is typical to semi-open and closed models, but in return you get a much more "effortless" sounding, precise low end.

All-in-all: I am using my AKG K-712 PRO for mastering and mixing jobs with great results.

Amazing headphones
Pattern, 26.05.2019
I bought these mainly to produce and listen to techno and house. At first I was a bit dissapointed, since they lack a bit of bass, but over the hours of listening to music they start feeling amazing. They are very good for mixing and listening to any kind of music. I would recommend using a piece of software to boost your lows however when listening to music heavier on bass.

Comfort wise also they feel as if you don't even have them on at times. I could have them on the whole day compared to others that really fatigue your ears. However I wouldn't recommend them to people that have a smaller head since they are pretty large and some of my friends that tried them said that they keep sliding down their head.

Overall they really are amazing and probably the best studio headphones for mixing at this price range.
